Chicago Blackhawks Morning Links- Duck, Duck,…….

By Keith Schultz

Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans, As we wait for the Eastern Conference to finish up it’s play, we are stuck waiting for the Western Conference Finals schedule to be released and knowing when the Chicago Blackhawks will visit the Honda Center and the Anaheim Ducks for Game #1.

According to reporters in Anaheim the Honda Center is booked on Saturday so a Friday-Sunday or Sunday-Tuesday matchup makes the most sense to open up the series.  It should be a fast exciting series with teams that are a combined 16-3 in the first two rounds so something has to give among other things than just wins and losses.

This will probably be the last go around for all of the Chicago Blackhawks core so let’s take a deep breath and enjoy the ride and the breather before the games are being played back on the ice.

Here are some morning links to kick off your Tuesday morning.
